why is it important to set HR goals?
Human resource strategic planning is important for every business, regardless of size and should align with the organizational goals and objectives. Effective goal setting can impact an organization’s progress when aligned effectively to optimize outcomes. As part of an annual review, HR should assess trends in performance to goals, understand the future intentions of the company, and establish new goals that are consistently in tandem with the organization’s strategy.
